The two hour was the result of the glucose tolerance test. The nurse told us the numbers. The doctor just never gave us a diagnoses. It was a fluke that I checked her sugars at home. When the home reading came back at 386, believe me I had he wash her hands, I cleaned the machine surfaces and checked everyone else in the household. I am thinking she is just starting and we just happened to catch it. I wish the doctor would have called back. I keep hoping it is something else.

Did you wash her finger before testing? could be something was on her finger. but other than that, I don't know of anything... good luck...

Old to diabetes, but all new with it being my daughter. Im not even sure of the correct diagnoses as the doctor left me waiting ALL weekend. But with a two hour of 356 what else can it be?

That was what I was thinking...actually I thought strep since he has had it four times this year. After the tests were negative, I was stumped. I guess I will keep waiting and see what he comes down with. I guess if there is a good side to diabetes, it is that we know before the illness hits. Never thought I would be able to say that and smile. He doesn't sneak candy often, but this time of year I don't think any of them can resist. I just reinforce the fact that he doesn't need to sneak we can incorporate it in his meal...have to reinforce it every year though!!!!! Thanks for reinforcing my thoughts.

Hi Shant,
Wow, yours sneaks candy too?? I thought we were the only ones! Mary likes to go into the bathroom and lock the door. I have already found Nestle's morsels under the sink!
Another interesting thing. Just last night Mary's sugars were high AGAIN and this time she had mod. keytones.
I noticed she is also complaining of leg pains again.
I have concluded it as growing pains? or perhaps the change in weather. I have noticed spring and Autumn brings a change in her sugars.

Cameron is most likely high due to his Sore throat. That's pretty common whenever there is sickness, colds, sore throats etc. sugars will run high.
You are doing the right thing, keep checking the keytones. I am thinking that his stomach pains are due to the highs. Make sure he is drinking a LOT of water!
Keep up the great work!

Cameron has had highs and a sore throat all week. We have gone to the doctor, and all tests are negative. I am at a loss as to what can be wrong. He also had a stomach ache, but no ketones. He has not been sneaking candy. The only thing I can think of is possibly stress...any better ideas?

My 4-year-old daughter was diagnosed 11 1/2 months ago. She is starting on the pump on Oct 17th. I'm excited but a little nervous. Does anyone have any advice for us?
